    As far as drive-by theory textbooks, this is a pretty good one; Klassen gives the basics of a number of cultural studies theories and theoreticians, and applies their findings in basic ways to the properties and artifacts of popular culture. For the most part this is handled rather cleanly, and with good writing that shows the diversity of these theories and the various ways they help people understand the importance of culture in the processes of meaning-making and religion. Other times, though As far as drive-by theory textbooks, this is a pretty good one; Klassen gives the basics of a number of cultural studies theories and theoreticians, and applies their findings in basic ways to the properties and artifacts of popular culture. For the most part this is handled rather cleanly, and with good writing that shows the diversity of these theories and the various ways they help people understand the importance of culture in the processes of meaning-making and religion. Other times, though, theories are covered in incredibly cursory ways, or the analysis and application of theories is handled on a very surface-y level that stands out in conjunction with the relative depth of other analyses. All-in-all this is a fantastic primer and a useful reference material, though, even with its minor flaws.
